Every time I book hotels, flights and shop, I always check for sites offering cash back. On average, for every hotel booking, I get a kickback of 5%, every international flight yields $3 and 1-10% cash back for online shopping. I'm a member of several cash back websites with Topcashback and Shopback being my favourites. Probably won't make you rich but you can easily recoup several hundreds of dollars if you spend several thousands on travel related expenses alone. Currently, Shopback gives a marginally higher % cash back (6%) for and (6%) whereas Topcashback is awarding 5% for bookings through the aforementioned sites. Topcashback and Shopback operate in several countries. If interested, please check out:
